Call for Submissions

The Journal of Urban Cultural Studies invites submission of abstracts to be included in the interactive short paper session -lightning round abstract as described below- at the Association of American Geographers Conference to be held April 3-7, 2020 in Denver.

The Urban Cultural Studies session features innovative research that connects urban geography and cultural studies in order to better understand the culture(s) of cities. The interactive short papers will explore aspects of urban studies through humanities texts such as literature, film, graphic novels, music, art, graffiti, videogames and other textual forms of culture. This session is linked to the Journal of Urban Cultural Studieswith Intellect publishers and its accompanying blog and podcast series at urbanculturalstudies.wordpress.com.

Following the model of a 'lighting round session', each of the 10-14 panelists in the Urban Cultural Studies session will present a 5-minute summary of research or studies in process. A 30- to 45-minute interactive roundtable discussion will follow the presentations. In order to submit an abstract, you must first register for the conference here: http://www.aag.org/cs/annualmeeting/register. Once registered, you will need to proceed to the abstract and session submission console. Select the New Abstract button on the console page, and follow the on-screen instructions to submit the appropriate abstract type. You will receive an email message when you have successfully submitted your abstract to confirm that it has been accepted. If you need guidance on how to format your abstract for AAG, see here: http://www.aag.org/cs/annualmeeting/call_for_papers. After submitting your abstract, contact me with your assigned PIN number and I will include you in the session.
